Nunley getting prepared

Now that Jamie Nunley is committed to Arizona, he is getting ready for the next level. Read on to see how he is doing that and more.

Murrieta (Calif.) Vista 2015 wide receiver Jamie Nunley looks the part of a typical Rich Rodriguez recruit.

He is a gifted player with a passion for the game, but he also possesses the flexibility to play multiple positions.

“My position and role is still kind of up in the air,” Nunley said. “The coaches want to see how I fill out this next year before they make a decision on where I’m going to play.

"If I keep bulking up they said they could see me at tight end, but at the same time if I don't put on enough weight I can transfer over to receiver.

"It’s a flexible offense, so I’m not scared. There are a lot of different places to contribute at.”

Regardless of the position Nunley eventually settles in at, he is working on the aspects of the game that translate to either spot.

“The big thing with me right now is working on the precision of my routes," he said. "I need to get in and out of my cuts as quickly as possible.

"It’s easy at this stage in the game because in high school I don’t go against a ton of guys as talented as me.”

That won’t always be the case.

“The coaches tell me all the time that it’s a different game at the next level, so I’ve got to get my fundamentals down," Nunley said.

The UA coaches plan on being there every step of the way.

“Ever since I committed, the coaches have talked with me quite a bit, especially Coach Michalczik," Nunley said.

"They are happy that I’m in and fully committed. They are looking for guys who are all in to do what it takes to win big at Arizona, and they found one in me.”
